The event builds on the success of previous Elevate Summits, hosted by Uber from 2017 to 2019 before Uber Elevate was acquired by Joby in 2020.

“We launched the Elevate Summit five years ago to provide an open forum for this new industry to come together and have a common vision for the future,” said Eric Allison, Chief Product Officer at Joby and former head of Elevate at Uber.

“Since then, the Summit has established itself as the key air mobility event, laying the foundation for the industry to move from rendering to reality.

“We are at a key moment in the evolution of our industry. In addition to demonstrating record speed, altitude and endurance performance with our pre-production prototype aircraft, several companies, including Joby, have gone public and interest in the promise of this technology has never been so high. It’s the perfect time to get together. »

This momentum was recently recognized in a segment of CBS’s 60 Minutes, hosted by Anderson Cooper, during which Acting Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Billy Nolen said, “Obviously, we’re seeing the emergence of something fantastic… We want to be careful, we want to be measured, but… it’s real, and it’s happening.

Held in New York City for the first time, the summit will take place at Duggal Greenhouse in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard, where attendees can imagine a near future in which quiet, electric and emission-free air mobility unlocks new means of transportation. opportunities in urban areas.
